Princely Gifts

A wise person of my acquaintance has very generously donated half a dozen very useful liturgical books to my ever-expanding private library (which visitors may peruse by appointment). She kindly sent:
  • The Missal. London: Burns, Oates & Washbourne, 1928.
  • Lefebvre, Gaspar. Saint Andrew Daily Missal. Bruge: Abbey of St-André, 1954.
  • Encalcat Abbey. Book of Hours. Dourgne: Editions d'Encalcat, 1956.
  • The Roman Breviary. An Approved English Translation complete in one volume... New York: Benzinger Brothers, 1964. [Approved for liturgical use.]
  • The New Small Missal... for all Sundays and the Principal Feasts. London: Burns & Oates, 1966.
  • Officium Divinum. [Sunday Day Hours, and Prime, Sext and Compline for the days of the week, with relevant chant notation] Kansas City: Angelus Press, 2001.
Quid retribuam?  I am very glad indeed to receive these gems, above all the complete 1962 Roman Breviary in English.

Retribuere, dignare, Domine, omnibus nobis bona facientibus, propter nomen tuum, vitam æternam. Amen.

You are quite fortunate indeed! I am intrigued with the Encalcat Breviary! The Bede Babo Breviary is a keeper!
